May 27, 2002 - May 27, 2002 - Ruth Peled, 56, of Herzliya and her infant granddaughter Sinai Keinan, aged 14 months, of Petah Tikva were killed when a suicide bomber detonated himself near an ice cream parlor outside a shopping mall in Petah Tikva.

The explosion ripped through the Em Hamoshavot commercial center at around 6:40 PM. Among the injured were many children, who were inside the cafe and a nearby ice-cream parlor. Police said the bomb used contained around 10 kilograms of explosives, packed with metal objects to maximize the number of casualties.

Lior and Chen Keinan had gone to buy ice cream with their infant daughter Sinai and Chen's mother, Ruth Peled, when the blast occurred. Ruth and Sinai were killed. The infant's parents were among the 37 injured in the attack.

"You are talking about their first child," a family member said. "She was their whole world. They had gone for a walk and then stopped to rest and buy ice cream."

Ruth worked as an investigator for the Modi'in Ezrahi company and later as a medical secretary for the Mor Medical Institute. She suffered from kidney failure, and on the morning of the explosion had undergone tests for a possible transplant. Her husband, Natan, said: "If Ruthie had known that Sinai was killed, she would not have wanted to live." Her daughter Chen said, "I would need 30 years to write about my mother. It was 30 years of love, friendship and happiness. Not every mother is also a friend."

Ruth Peled and Sinai Keinan were buried side by side in Kibbutz Shefayim. Ruth is survived by her husband Natan, and their three children - Chen (31), Lee (30) and Udi (24).

May God bless their memory.
